Louise Bourgeois’s (1911-2010, b. Paris, France) Spiders was on display in Rockefeller Center in the summer of 2001. The work featured a thirty-foot-tall spider, Maman—meaning “Mama” in Bourgeois’s native French—carrying a basket of eggs and flanked by two smaller spiders. Brian D. Leitch from The New York Times Magazine stated, “Louise Bourgeois, like the giant mother-spider sculpture she created several years ago, has been spinning a web of weirdly magnificent work for more than six decades—and finally, at 90, she’s getting her full due.”
